Restylane for cheeks
The mid-face plays an important role when it comes to managing the signs of facial aging. In the cheeks, this is exemplified in the loss of malar fat pads, increased buccal hollowing, and descending ptotic cheek fat, which deepens the nasolabial fold and accentuates cheek concavity. Although doctors previously treated these signs of aging through the surgical lifting and tightening of the skin, it is now recognized that restoring volume to the cheeks can substantially rejuvenate the face as a whole. When to use Restylane for cheeks A youthful face has what is referred to as the “triangle of youth:” it is broadest at the cheeks and has its apex at the chin. However, the effects of age-related volume loss and increased skin laxity slowly change this triangle to a trapezoid, as the fullness originally in the midface slowly descends. Restoring volume to the cheeks counteracts these effects and creates a “liquid facelift,” preventing sagging in the lower face. When it comes to c [Read more]
Restylane for Acne Scars
Patients with scarring from acne usually desire a way to improve the look of their scars, particularly if they are on their face. While the treatment of acne scarring is strictly cosmetic, diminishing the appearance of these scars can result in great improvements to the patient’s psychological and emotional well-being, and can profoundly impact their self-image. Acne scars are usually a result of nodular and cystic acne, and are caused by atypical healing following inflammation, where enzymatic and inflammatory mediators cause a localized breakdown of subcutaneous fat and collagen. Treating acne scars with Restylane injections For the aesthetic practitioner, treating acne scarring can be challenging, as not all scars may respond in the same way, or at all, to a generalised therapeutic approach. It is therefore important that the treatment be tailored to the individual based on their specific needs. There are currently many different modalities of treatments available for the tre [Read more]
Woman after using Restylane for Nose
Restylane for non-surgical rhinoplasty Restylane is a popular dermal filler used for correcting and enhancing the nose. It is well received by both patients and practitioners alike: patients like it because of its natural and effective results, while practitioners appreciate its ease of use and high moldability. When treating the nose with a dermal filler like Restylane, the injection is made in the deep dermis or subcutis, with small amounts of product deposited in short linear threads. Practitioners should avoid placing boluses of filler in a fixed position. Once placed, some molding or rolling can be employed to shape the product into the desired contour. Why reshaping your nose with Restylane is a good idea The nose is a central element of the face and significantly impacts facial aesthetics. As such, it is not surprising that there is popular demand for nasal augmentation and enhancement treatments. The advent of dermal fillers has given rise to a whole new set of options fo [Read more]
How Long does Radiesse Last
Clinical aesthetics has faced a paradigm shift in how it approaches treatment of the aging face. Where before, aesthetic practitioners tended towards a two-dimensional model of treatment in which fillers were viewed and treated in isolation, advances in our understanding of facial anatomy and how it is affected by the aging process has resulted in a trend towards facial rejuvenating techniques that involve volume and shape replenishment. With the focus now on using volume and shape to restore youthful proportions, balance, and symmetry, there has been a massive surge in the development and use of injectable dermal fillers for anti-aging treatment. Why do doctors use Radiesse? Characterizing dermal fillers can be done by roughly diving them into two classes, based on their mode of action: those for volume replacement (where the majority of hyaluronic acid-based fillers lie), or for collagen biostimulation. Based on this classification, fillers made of calcium hydroxylapatite (marke [Read more]
Restylane for Smile Lines, Laugh Lines
Throughout the aging process, a combination of facial volume loss, skin laxity, and increased dryness leads to the development of wrinkles and folds. The mouth is particularly predisposed to wrinkles, as its high mobility and loss of volume can lead to the creation of lines. For this reason, treatment of this region is often requested by patients. Which Restylane filler is best for smile and laugh lines? The Restylane brand of dermal fillers offers many options for treating smile lines and laugh lines. The classic formula of Restylane is often used for this issue, as it has shown high efficacy and safety. For minor smile lines around the mouth, Restylane Silk is also an excellent choice, as its thin formula is easily spreadable. In some clinical practices, a layered combination approach may be taken, utilizing a combination of Restylane products so that a better treatment outcome is attained. Moreover, Restylane Refyne and Defyne (two new additions to the Restylane portfolio) are a [Read more]
Treating Crow’s Feet with Botox
Containing botulinum toxin type A as its active ingredient, Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic injectables among patients. Today, Botox treatment is available in more than 78 countries worldwide, including the United Kingdom, Canada, and other countries in South America, Asia, and Europe. The mechanism by which Botox acts is fairly simple: It blocks the signals of the motor nerve cells, thereby paralyzing the muscle. More specifically, Botox binds to the motor nerve terminals to inhibit the release of acetylcholine (ACh), a neurotransmitter that modulates muscle contraction, which results in a partial chemical denervation that reduces muscle activity. Botox is used to treat a wide range of medical conditions. Such conditions include spasticity, overactive bladder, cervical dystonia, urinary incontinence, blepharospasm, and migraines. Botox also has a long history of use in aesthetic medicine, where its application is thoroughly wide-ranging in use. In this r [Read more]
Neck and decolletage wrinkle treatment
Aging in the neck and decolletage areas can often be indicative of a person’s true age. As such, it is important to treat these areas in order for your patient to retain a more youthful appearance. Unfortunately, this region is all too often overlooked when it comes to caring for the skin. Most of the time, skincare routines (which include applying skincare products and SPF for sun protection), are limited to the face, resulting in an aged appearance on the skin of the neck and decolletage. The delicate skin on the neck is extremely prone to exhibiting the signs of aging. After the eye area, it is usually 1 of the first areas of the body to develop wrinkles, partially because its structure is less elastic. When combined with other age-related factors, such as chin fullness (submental fat), sagging of the jowls, and platysmal banding, this lack of flexibility usually results in loss of the definition of the cervicomental angle, which is associated with the aging neck.

Botulinum Toxin A vs B
Botulinum toxin is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is a neurotoxin protein and is used to treat a variety of aesthetic concerns and medical conditions, including dynamic wrinkles, excessive sweating, chronic migraines, and cervical dystonia, to name a few. There are various types of botulinum toxin, but the ones used for treatment are types A and B. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are examples of brands that use type A. Type B is an alternative treatment for those who are hypersensitive or don’t respond to type A. The only approved type B toxin is Myobloc (also known as NeuroBloc). Treatment with botulinum toxin Botulinum toxin injections are administered intramuscularly. Treatments are given a minimum of every 3 months. Both type A and B are injectable treatments. Only a trained medical professional should give Botox injections. Type A is available in a powdered form and can be used in injections by adding saline. Type B comes as an injectabl [Read more]
